Flowers have been part of Mother’s Day since the 17th century where people attended a prayer service in honour of the Virgin Mary, followed by giving their own mothers gifts and flowers. Carnations are regarded as classic Mother’s Day flowers and symbolize motherhood, love, admiration and purity. Other popular Mother’s Day flowers are tulips, lilies and roses.
